This was our second attempt at the Brewery tour and this time was very successful.. a good trip round a lovely old Brewery that still brews beer properly without any faddy terms like '' Craft''..''Artisan''..or the like.
Although not in service some of the ancient equipment is still on site to be viewed e.g. the old mash tun plates set into the floor of the video room...or the steam engines preserved in another room.Old Cooper shop..old drays of yesteryear...etc.
Martyn put on a good tour for us and a tasting of half a dozen beers afterwards..very nice.
The only criticism I would have would be either more opportunity for Questions or a Q&A session after.
Otherwise..top tour..highly recommended.

Thank Riothamus

Well what a surprise our tour guide Allen was informative, interesting, funny and sincere in his presentation. You could hear what he was saying wherever you stood in the group of 20+. The processes were explained and any questions were answered. The beer tasting at the end was also very informative and a pleasure to be involved with. The beer served in the visitor centre was excellent as the barman knew his stuff so much so that we went to the Anchor for lunch and more beer.

This tour was well organised, delivered by our guide Alan with knowledge and humour. It gives insight into the brewing process and also the brewing industry. There's a strong sense of pride surrounding Britain's oldest brewer, and when you get to the tasting at the end you find out why. Thoroughly recommended.

Took visiting relatives on the Brewery Tour to occupy a very wet afternoon in Faversham. We were greeted by our guide Martyn who proved great company and provided a fascinating commentary on brewing and a brewery with its own incredible history. Even the non-beer drinkers amongst us enjoyed the day and that included the generous tutored beer tasting afterwards.
Highly recommended
